A 14-acre wastewater disposal site on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina was studied to collect data on water level and quality of the surficial aquifer.
Temples, T.J., and M.G. Waddell. 1996. Application of petroleum geophysical well logging and sampling techniques for evaluating aquifer characteristics. Ground Water, 34:523-531.
A test well on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina was drilled to evaluate the usefulness of the Upper Cretaceous as a possible groundwater source. A suite of petroleum-industry based logging and sampling techniques were used for analyses to reduce the expense of conventional coring, and flow testing of the well. Results of the testing found water quality to be higher than expected.
